I'm not quite sure why Barcelona City Centre Hostal has acquired so many positive reviews as time spent there recently was not what I had expected following the glowing reviews by previous writers. The location is central and close to transport, and for Barcelona the price as discovered upon looking at numerous other hotels was reasonable, but certainly not a bargain. The room rates also doubled over the weekends at this accommodation. The room was small but clean, wifi worked well, and yes the staff were friendly, however not what I would consider to be particularly competent when dealing with reported problems. The ongoing blocked shower drain that contributed to ankle deep drainage water was not appealing, especially when we were informed that the problem had been fixed when it hadn't. The set top box for the satellite television did not work at all. When this was reported it was met with a very casual attitude with no offers of a solution. The ill fitting and very worn foam mattress was uncomfortable in the futon style bed, and the fridge did not reach a temperature below 15 degrees. The walls were thin, and when the people next door showered almost every movement and unwanted sound was audible.
